Quoting MysticWitchKat:" It always amazes me that people seem to find it okay to ban certain words as culturally unacceptable, but degrading a woman for her choices is deemed a OK ;). "
Quoting Supafly★:" The choice to sleep with another woman's husband is not "A-Okay" to me. It's immoral. Call me old-fashioned but I don't respect women who don't have morals. "
Morals are subjective to each individual however. And often people who smurf someone else's wife/husband are lied to or strung along as well. The issue with the word, is it's given only to women, and each individual seems to choose what their definition of it is. If both sexes were called slut and shamed over things it would be one thing, however only women suffer for their sexual choices. Guys cheat and often get away scot free, yet the woman is a slut? Seem's a bit backwards to label the women, but not the person most guilty :-P.
Quoting Heeeeeey, Sexy lady. ;):" <blockquote><b>Quoting Supafly★:</b>" The choice to sleep with another woman's ... [snip!] ... cheating scumbag taking off his wedding band, lying tell you he has to work extra hours or go out of town on a business trip."

Quoting Supafly★:" Pretty sure I said a page or 2 back that the guy is a douchebag and an smurf for cheating, and that he's definitely just as guilty. "Then why not simply say the same about her? That's my point you simply negatively label the girl, but don't really do the same to the guy o.O? And before you say it, douchebag or smurf does not have the same impact as slut.

Quoting Supafly★:" "Douchebag" and "smurf" aren't really descriptive words for a girl lol. What else should I call the guy? Prick, bastard, man-whore....? The choice is yours. "
Quoting MysticWitchKat:" Why not? I call girls and guys douchebags or smurfs all the time :-P."
Quoting Supafly★:" Alright so she's a douchebag. But either way, she's in the wrong, correct? It just depends on your word or "label" of choice. "
Quoting MysticWitchKat:" No, because cheating isn't always black and white to me, plus I don't know the particulars of the situation ... [snip!] ... was being told,her mental state'. That's why I tend not to judge people doing this, because I have no idea what is going on."
